Good questions. He lived in Italy (a long time I think) and was tied in with the automotive industry. So must have had contacts. Museum cars for study maybe?


Edit: “Peter Giacobbi, an engineer by trade, hand-built his own 1959 Ferrari Testarossa. There are only 21 1959 Testarossa's in the world. A 1957 Testarossa was sold last year for more than $39 million.” From Business Insider. They link the same video.

No kidding, all I could think was big $$$$$$$$$$$. All those fixtures and that table!

When they assembled the body, I was guessing it was mostly aluminum, but donít know for sure.
